Staying in a chateau south of Avignon with a large group.
I have a free flight getting me from New York to Heathrow (a gift from a friend) landing at 8.30 on Sept 7.
The next leg of the journey is up to me. Many of the cheaper flights are leaving Gatwick for Marseille around 6pm. gets me to the chateau very late in the evening. plus there is a transport issue from MRS to the house. plus I'd have to get to gatwick.
I was thinking of taxi from heathrow to St pancra - euro star to paris - a switch to the TGV and take that to avignon tgv station. is this just a big pain in the neck?
and whats the switch like in paris between the 2 stations?
